at the performance of susan rice, among others, and the obama administration, and so, harry reid sent a letter yesterday and told john mccain he is not going to get the special committee he wanted. but i think the administration simply is going to have to watch republicans spend their energy on this. david petraeus tried to make the argument, defending susan rice, that she was repeating talking points, that she'd been given for the reason that the administration did not want to alert terrorist groups that we knew that they were behind the attack. i'm not sure that that's going to quiet the criticism. we're just going to have to see how long it plays out. >> you saw the meeting yesterday with the president and congressional leaders on the fiscal cliff. how confident are you that a compromise will be reached in a timely fashion? >> pretty confident, actually, alex. you know, i thought the outcome of that meeting was about as positive as you could hope to see from a bipartisan meeting of congressional leaders with the president of the united states, all four leaders, pelosi, mcconnell, reid, boeh
the things he was describing that the obama administration did, that is called governing. >> yeah. i think -- same question to you, david, why would he use words like this? i think it's the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. 47% was unscripted. this was unscripted. this could be the pure romney. >> you know, chris, i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark. when i saw it, i couldn't believe it, but i thought maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying it to play up to that crowd. he knew that's what they wanted to hear. but now when we hear how he talks about voters, he didn't just say, yes, they were bought off that, obama won their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign of big ideas, but these other people out there, they don't care about it. they're just in it for themselves, so they are the moochers, they are victims who are looking at who will pay them the most. in the end what happens, mitt romney portrays himself as a victim of the victims. it just confirms all the worst impressions from the 47% rant, and now you have republicans running awa
gears and talk about jobs. the obama administration repeatedly asked defense contractor not to comply with t with it and warn they might be laid off in advance of cuts and of course recently boeing laid off 30% of its management force and other companies are expected to do the same. do you think the president played politics with these job cuts? >> i don't know if he played politics, but i know this. if you understand defense appropriations that that $600 billion in the sequestration, most of it is in research and development and procurement. only 15% of any procurement contract or research and development is spent in the first year. so the immediate cuts from this don't have very much impact. second, when people talk about jobs, the defense and aerospace association said there would be a million jobs lost if that $600 billion went into effect. you know what? s.e., there's only 3.5 million bornste jobs in defense in the aerospace industry, that including 757s. they're going to lose 33% in one year of their entire work force because of a 10% cut in defense? weren't a job welfare progra
of the obama administration knew it was going on, they buried it until after the election and going on and on and on and on. does that matter? >> well, i don't know if it's true. if it's true i guess it does. they have managed to bury the benghazi story. the media has said since romney didn't bring it up, they didn't feel any obligation to bring it up. if they put that past the election and they put this petraeus thing past the election. this second term is going to be pretty ugly people not going to go away. >> it won't be the bad guys some indication that his whatever you want to call her, his friend may have made a speech and given away some secret information that she may or may not have gotten. >> bill: only thing that could happen is if holder gets dragged into this because he may because he obviously overseas the fbi and he knew what was going on and if he see that he bury it and got fast and furious on his resume. >> you can bury certain things for only a certain amount of time. and second terms are not kind to second term presidents. i think coupled with the stagnant econom
on the evidence we had then, this was the obama administration's watergate. >> officials say petraeus's decision to leave the cia was entirely personal and had nothing to do with benghazi or politics. but that's not how fox news sees it. >> there's not many stories that could knock the president's reelection right out of the headlines. not many. we got one. >> are you assuming that's why they didn't tell the story until after the election? >> the plot thickens. . >> the fact that his scandal wasn't mentioned prior to the election, that would have had an impact on the election. >> i suspect the tough chicago guys knew about this affair for awhile and held it in their pocket until they needed to play their card. >> the questions mount and mount and mount. was this covered up until after the election, which would compromise safety in favor of politics? which is disgusting. like that hasn't happened. >> the drone, fast and furious. >> all these things have been happening after the election. >> at lot of people have affairs and they don't have to quit. >> let's bring in richard wolffe, msnbc politica
mitt romney saved it. now the obama administration can spend the next years putting this new effect, the framework upon which future reforms to the health care system are based. the idea of universal health care is probably permanent and mitt romney is a big part of that. >> that's a fascinating theory. >> that's a footnote for it. it's great. >> yeah. conspiracy theorists would say it was all a plan to get obama care implemented. bring romney in, he'll lose, and it will be a validation for obama care to go forward. we have a cheeky metric by which to measure romney's popularity to say, in the hours, the 24 hours following his loss, his likes on facebook fell by more than 10,000. that's a steep and sharp decline. you know, the question is as you said, self-identified romneyists perhaps will not exist. what are romneyists? do they represent some moderate wing of the party that will get overrun by the tea partiers and voices like newt gingrich that think it's all about being more conservative? what does to be a romneyist mean? >> if only he had been clear enough throughout the campaig
to the bottom of it. what republicans are saying is the obama administration has put out very conflicting stories about what happened in benghazi, when they knew about it, what they did about it and how they sort of perpetuated the idea this was a spontaneous attack. so the republicans on capitol hill are saying we only need to get through the double talk. get to the bottom of what happened. we lost an american am bas dpor. three other americans. president obama said i did everything i could as soon as we found out this is happening. then how come the whole place was left completely undefended? there's so many big ands of questions. that's what senator mccain was getting at yesterday when he said let's put together a committee that can look at this specifically, rather than having it scattered and half a dozen committees looking at it. this may give us a better answer faster. that's ultimately what everybody wants to keep the americans safe abroad and in the future. >> is this part of the mccain and obama conflict from 2008? >> i think mccain -- right after obama was elected in 2008, mcca
keep their centrifuges spinning. but we're in, again, close consultation with the obama administration about ways of preventing iran from acquiring military nuclear capabilities. that conversation is very intimate, very close and continuous. >> does that mean you don't have a problem or you do have a problem? >> i want to say we're talking about it very closely. >> i'll leave it at that. >> thank you. >> mr. ambassador, thanks very much for coming in. >>> an fbi probe explodes into a scandal that takes down the cia director. we're learning new details of how that investigation unfolded and the privacy concerns it's now raising. ♪ [ male announcer ] from our nation's networks... ♪ ...to our city streets... ♪ ...to skies around the world... ♪ ...northrop grumman's security solutions are invisibly at work, protecting people's lives...

the obama administration had given to particular groups in this country. >> what the president -- the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of this base coalition. give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government. and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> reporter: among those groups the gifts went to, romney discusses the african-american community, young people and the hispanic community, here, offering one of the gifts to them. >> what the president did is he gave them two things. one a big gift on immigration with the dream act amnesty program. >> reporter: and the second thing in order to get hispanic voters? >> number two, put in place obama care which is basically $10,000 a family. i mean, it's a proven political strategy which is give a bunch of money from the government to a group and guess what, they'll vote for you. >> reporter: sources telling me this has been romney's argument since the moment he realize heed lost, telling the closest circle the very next morning that america is becoming an entitled society, that some a
as one of the most popular members of the obama administration. clinton talks about how she's been in the political spotlight for 20 years. and she wants her life back. fair enough. says she wants to sleep, relax. okay. but what about after that? while hillary clinton has repeatedly said she won't run for president again, this is the same woman who says politics is in her dna. she is after all a clinton. and with a resume that includes secretary of state, senator, first lady, well, a democratic nomination is probably hers for the taking if she wants it. vice president joe biden's keeping the door open to a possible 2016 presidential run although he recently acknowledged it might depend on the economy. a memo to the vice president might also depend on hillary clinton. here's the question, is hillary clinton the answer? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile or go to our post on "the situation room" facebook page. never too early to start speculation. >> special for those of us who are political news junkies. i've been saying for a while no inside information. i suspect she still has that passio

to trigger a promised review from the obama administration. the report notes that 69 similar petitions according to the alter net have garnered over 670,000 signatures from all 50 states. prompting a review that will no doubt consist of junior white house staffers enjoying a good laugh before placing them in a circular file. not to be left out someone offered another petition to the administration to strip the citizenship from everyone who signed the petition to secede and exile them. so it is good to know after the election and a decisive democratic victory that we are all united now and will never fight again. travis is calling us from chicago, illinois. good morning travis. you're on the "bill press show." welcome. >> caller: good morning, john. >> john: what a pleasure. >> caller: every time i hear all of this big uproar about benghazi thing, it makes me sick because out here in chicago we've got about 20 kids killing each other every weekend. most of them are innocent bystanders getting killed. there is a good handful
into the libya raid and the obama administration's response to it. they also said they would try to block any attempt to nominate susan rice as the next secretary of state, describing her as unqualified for the job after she originally characterized the terror attack as a protest gone wrong. she went on the sunday shows including "meet the press" a couple days after the attack and said that. president obama in his news conference yesterday fired back at senators mccain and graham. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> those republican senators were quick to respond to the

to talk about specifically if he is asked whether or not there is going to be a benefit for a second obama administration for the african-american community and how they're doing economically? and also, you see this president over the last couple of weeks who is more emotional and we've seen him cry the last couple of times, the last couple of weeks. is he iffing to feel that he can be a little bit more of himself, more open and really own this administration, own his policy, and be a more comfortable president in the next four years? >> he got re-elected rather decisively, 332 electoral college votes. you only need 270 to be elected. he goes in right now with a lot of confidence, but, you know what, all that confidence in the world can't help if the country is about to go over the fiscal cliff. >> yeah. you ow, i mean, it really is something when you think about it going in the second term that he is going to be dealing with something like this. there are some advisor who's say, yeah, call the bluff, go over the cliff. it's not going to be as bad as you think because you've got more lever
program, the graham questioning why the obama administration sent out ambassador rice to handle the after the attack in the first place. >> i can't believe the president sent something out to talk about benghazi that that had nothing to do with benghazi. why did they pick her? she is not in charge of consulate security. she works in the u.n. why nobody from the state department? i believe she is a close political ally on the president. she went on national tv four or five days after the attack when there is no credible information that the video scenario was real. and she either through incompetence or an intentional effort to mislead the american people tried to spin a story that would help the president. gregg: pretty stunning charge. as we mentioned, senator graham joining senators john mccain, kelly ayotte calling for a watergate-style joint committee of congress to investigate the attack. later on "america's newsroom", reaction from a big critic of the president on libya, georgia senator john any isakson will join us. martha: as we mentioned the house foreign affairs committee on ben
attack on the u.s. mission in benghazi, libya. republicans, they stepped up their criticism of the obama administration after the president's strong defense yesterday of u.n. ambassador suzanne rice. rice originally said the attack resulted from protests over an anti-islamic video. while some democrats defended rice today, one congressman called the president a liar. >> what is clear is that this administration, including the president himself, has intentionally misinformed, lied to the american people in the aftermath of this tragedy. >> information that rice received, she cede from the administration, and that information is what she knew at that time. whether or not she knew other information and whether or not she told the truth, that is not an issue here. >> the fact is without iffing gu intoou all the details, documents received so that in 24 hours of the attack people m intelligence community believe that this was a terrorist attack, there was a planned attack, and so when they knew that the day after, which would have been september 12th, why on september 14th was general petraeu

administration and president obama is going to have a decision very much like the one president bush had in 2002. right now we need to step back and think creatively. are there other scenarios that we can work that can get a good result in iran? without leaving the president of the united states where he only has two choices? go to war, or accept a nuclear- powered iran. neither of those is attractive. now is the time to think of it -- think creatively about an acceptable outcome in iran and avoid the halcyon choice. >> are you concerned about is real? >> interesting, israel has a lot at stake, but they are also an independent decision maker. they have their own interest in this and have made it clear that they are not prepared to except without some of the military action iran with a clear path to a nuclear weapon. one scenario would be for the illustration to try to engage with the iranians diplomatically. with the other countries involved in the so called p five. offering a robust disclosure to the iranians if there regime will give up its nuclear program. to test them, to see if there is a d

't we have to say that if obama believes what he actually said during the recent political campaign? >> well, i agree with that. of course the administration wants to have it both ways because that's the nature of diplomacy. it's going to let the israelis get a green light here, but they're going to then stop the israelis from doing what essentially is to finish the job. after all, hamas is the equivalent of the khani network. if it works for the united states to use drones and to attack the terrorists that are attacking the american troops, what's good for the goose is good for the gander here. larry, but at the same time you know the game. the administration is going to recognize that the egyptians are going to be placed in a position of having to do something if the israelis do invade, and the americans have a strategic interest, as of course the israelis do, of preserving the egyptian-israeli peace treaty. and that's -- >> but the israeli forces can bottle up gaza and stop egyptian weapons from getting through. they can do that, can they someone. >> yeah, well, that's the proble
